Hello! I’m running a Meditation Course in Berlin! Here’s what it’s all about…
Creativity is the use of ideas, imagination and intuition to make or create something. It is a process that involves clarity, invention, originality, decision-making, deep listening, attention to detail, trust, empathy, vision, good instincts, and, the ability to communicate engagingly with others – sometimes all at once!
But how do you achieve this in today’s super-busy, distraction-filled, ‘time-poor’ climate?
Often it’s a struggle to find a moment to ‘reach inside’ and find the stories you want to tell, the ideas you want to share, or even to produce the things you want to make. How do you make that space for a ‘light bulb moment’ or inspiration to happen?
“You can’t wait for inspiration; you have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London, writer, journalist, social activist
Meditation For Creativity is a seven-week course that will teach you the fundamentals of meditation* and how to apply them to your own creative process so you can more fully realise your potential and find those innovative ideas.
Whether you’re an artist, writer, performer, storyteller, crafter, musician, innovator, in business – or someone who just values the importance of living and thinking creatively – this course is for you!
